Residual Waste

Residual Waste includes all waste that cannot be recycled and therefore cannot go in recyclable waste fractions (Packaging, Glass, Paper & Cardboard, and Organic). Unfortunately, in the Residual Waste fraction a lot of waste can be found that, despite being recyclable, users have not properly separated and have wrongly placed there. Collected Residual Waste is brought to the so-called ecoparks, where various processes are employed to sort paper and cardboard, packaging, glass and other recyclable materials that may be present so they can be diverted into the recycling chain.

Waste that cannot be recycled goes to landfill or incineration. It would be best if such final treatments could be applied only to waste that cannot be reused or recycled, but the limitations of existing waste collection and treatment make such infrastructures necessary.
